HC Deb 16 March 1950 vol 472 c1248
52. Mr. Mitchison

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will now de-requisition the former tank training area at Burton Wold; or say when he expects to reach a decision in the matter.

Mr. T. Williams

The future of this land is under consideration and a decision will be reached as soon as possible.

Mr. Mitchison

Since this matter has been pending for some time, and the local farmers are sitting round in what might be called a farming circle, waiting to farm, can the Minister give me any idea of how soon the decision will be made?

Mr. Williams

I am asking the Agricultural Land Commission to give me a report on this case, but I do not expect to receive one under five or six weeks.
